The coveted MBA degree has different meanings for different people. While most of them simply consider it as an educational qualification required to land in a handsome job offer, for some it stands valid to earn some extra brownie points while moving up the career ladder.
Though the discussion around what MBA means to different people will help us churn out some valuable insights, I would like shed some light on the most basic one – Why MBA degree? Apart from the educational qualification, have you ever pondered over some pertinent questions – Why our society needs MBA graduates? Why a well designed industry-led MBA course has become even more relevant in today’s modern time?
To help explain this – our ecosystem offers limited resources whether it is time, human resources or raw materials. Economic theories will tell you that the objective of any economic or social activity is to optimally utilize the existing resources in order to maximise the wealth. Thus, our society demands specialised skilled managers who can understand and perform in a highly constrained environment and effectively apply their knowledge to utilise resources efficiently.
Having an MBA degree does not just add another feather to your profile to cash in the perfect job opportunity. It is indicative of the fact that you learn to look at challenges and opportunities more holistically. It gives you an analytical bend of mind to weigh options more comprehensively. An MBA program equips you with the requisite knowledge and skills to steer your life as a thought leader, and more importantly as a problem solver.
Over a period of time, MBA programs have undergone significant changes both in terms of quality of education and relevant industry exposure. In my opinion, MBA programs must offer a simulated learning environment for students to pick up problem solving abilities – more realistically and practically.
At MARC, we have designed our program keeping in mind the challenges businesses face in the 21st century. Our MBA program helps students realise their potential to fullest as future business leaders. Our students are given opportunities to solve real time business problems as part of our industry-link MBA program. MARC encourages students to conduct research and develop intellectual property as part of student-driven forums.
If you believe that you have what it takes to be an MBA, then we welcome you to this exciting career at MARC family.
